The Manchester People's Assembly has called a Nightmare Before Christmas...Eve of Budget Protest for Tuesday evening, the night before Chancellor George Osborne announces his Autumn Statement, expected to include more cuts and misery for working people and those on benefits.
"Austerity Britain is hurting us all" states the People's Assembly "Tory cuts to essential services and welfare are depriving many of essential lifelines and widening inequality. Foodbanks are swamped with requests for help. Welfare recipients face demonization, unfair sanctions and exploitative 'workfare'...
"The young are being increasingly excluded from benefits and rights" it adds "And now, Osborne wants to go against pre-election promises and slash tax credits, a vital source of income for working people and working families on low incomes. The Autumn budget promises to be a Nightmare Before Christmas…"
The People's Assembly is currently gearing up for the protest – expect lots of scary George Osborne's, axe in hand; expect creepy Christmas characters; and expect a macabre procession through Manchester City Centre...
